I've been going to the Flying E since I was about a year old. It is a family owned and run working dude and cattle ranch nestled in the desert by Wickenburg Arizona. In the distance you can see Vulture Peak (climb in you dare, and if you do you get a nice little certificate!).
When we started our family trips at the ranch, it was owned and run by a fantastic couple, George and Vi Wellik. When George passed, Vi took over and take over she did! The atmosphere at the ranch is second to none. When Vi passed in 2004, Andy and Steve took over and they have made the ranch even better. Steve is constantly finding snakes and lizards and showing and teaching the kids about them, photographing owlets in the cactus at the front gate, always welcoming and warm. I can't say enough good things about the Taylors and how they've continued the Flying E legacy.
Family style meals, breakfast made to order, lunch on the patio (with the same lunch trays that I remember as a kid - they're made to last!). Horseback riding, cook outs (complete with beer pancakes!), and every day HAPPY HOUR in the lounge (adults only).
Overall, I can't really describe how wonderful the Ranch is. It's one of those places that you have to experience to understand. I have 30 years of memories to look back on and look forward to creating more with my own family.
